**HEALING BUDDHA EMPOWERMENT with Lama Samten

Buddhist teachings explain that all kinds of sicknesses and sufferings originate from the mind. Even the physical sicknesses and discomforts have their source in mental delusions and afflictions. All of these can be subsumed into three : attachment, anger and ignorance.

The meditative practices and mantra recitation associated with Healing Buddha have the power to overcome them. It means that by practicing that, we can stop the power of these mental delusions so that in the future, we will not use our three doors (body, speech and mind) to accumulate negative actions, and the result will be that no more suffering will be produced.

Lama Samten is a great master in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. He studied and trained as a monk in Gajang Monastery, one of the greatest Buddhist Monastic University, for almost 20 years. Since he completed his studies, he shares his knowledge and wisdom with everybody interested in Canada and Europe since more than 20 years.

It is a great and rare opportunity to receive these teachings on the way to practice a so powerful and awesome meditative technique. Lama Samten will teach us the way that this practice can empower us to our happiness, freedom and well-being until Enlightenment.
